Ethan's main role at Gunner is as a solutions architect, which is odd, considering he hated infrastructure when he first joined the team as a developer back in 2014.
"DevOps changed all of that," he says. "I always viewed sys admins as the ones who stiffled creativity, telling the devs what they could and couldn't do. Now, with DevOps, the traditional sys admin role is gone and I work hand-in-hand with the developers to create a growing, evolving platform that matches the code being written."
That's not to say Ethan doesn't write application code anymore.
But that's not his favorite tool. That lies with his primary role.
"Man. It's a tossup," he says. "CloudFormation and the Serverless Framework are just amazing tools that allow you to script and code replicatable architectures. They combine both my passions."
